Because headaches are so common, some people believe that getting a headache is just a normal part of life! We have numerous who say, “Oh, I only have the usual headaches… nothing serious, I just take Tylenol or Advil.”
Headaches are a sign that something’s wrong and chiropractic treatment can be very effective in treating many types of headaches. It is estimated that 20 to 30 percent of adults have more than one episode of tension-type headache a month. Over 17 percent of those with regular headache meet diagnostic criteria for cervicogenic headache. Headaches result in a significant number of missed work days each year and may have an untold negative impact on the personal lives of headaches sufferers.
A frequent and overlooked cause of headaches is malfunction of the spinal bones in the neck and upper back. When bones of the spine lose their normal position or motion, sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected. Any time spinal nerves and related tissues are extended or irritated, they can produce throbbing headaches. Aspirin and medications may cover up these warning signs, but do not correct the underlying structural cause.
